Subject Re: OAuth for authorization (not authentication)
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2011 09:34:01 GMT
Hi Jan, thanks a lot for your answer, even if that's what I dread :-/ I
hope I can find another way to make Couch match my needs (smart proxy
maybe). Otherwise I'll keep Couch in mind for my next project, hoping it
won't have the same requirements or if other solutions appears until
then, because Couch is such a good piece of software! I want to use it.
